Question about GE Freezers
Model FUF17DMARWH. Came out of storage, plugged into outlet, turned thermostat up until compressor came on. Compressor ran for awhile, the outside of the side walls got very hot. After a short time, the GRI outlet popped (it was reset) and now the compressor will not come on at all (although the inside light works). I suspect the Thermal switch has tripped, but I don't know where it is or how to reset it. Does someone know?
when its running how hot are the sides the starting amps are too high and 1.5 running amps ain't bad now the the cut in cut out are too high if you look on the dial that the mid point settings that's where you should have it not on 1 1 is hot set it on the straight line that's where you should do all your testing colder settings go up not down you could be overheating the compressor by making it come on too quick the freezer should be about -10 or so do you see any gaps in the gasket

I think your system has a leak and has lost the refrigerant charge.
The only way to check is by accessing the sealed system. Most systems are covered for five years on the compressor. Contact the place of purchase and give them your indications for your problem.

1. You can hear the compressor running.
2. The temp setting you turn the thermostadt to starts and stops the compressor.
3. Look in your manual for a reset button and the location.
4. If you are familiar with a meter, grab the manual and check it it. But I doubt it is the resistance.
5. Sounds like a bad motor or low freon. If you have a lot of food in it, and the above didn't work, bite the bullet and call a repairman, although it sounds like much of the food is past saving if it is really defrosted.

Hi, The walls are getting hot because that is where the condesor coils are. The condensor coils are where the heat is disperst that is trap as the coolant pumps through the evaporator coils inside. The fact that it is holding 0 degrees is a good sign. Is this freezer in a garage?
Check the door seals to make sure no heat is getting into the freezer other then when the door is opened.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.
